    Karate Monkey tire Question

    I am currently using big apples on my monkey which I use mostly on the road but i don't think they are that comfortable with a rigid fork. If any of you have used Marathon Supremes for road and liked them and why? If anyone has used another tire that's foldable that you like for road tell me why and which ones. Thanks

    What PSI do you run? I have BA's on my Ogre and find them to be nice and cushy, but I tend to not pump them up too much

    I don't get it. If BAs @ 35 psi aren't comfy, nothing will be.
